Dr MARJORIE O'NEILL (Coogee) — On Monday 16 November, I had the pleasure of visiting the Windgap Foundation's Eastlakes site, where they host two of their fantastic day programs, and to meet their new acting CEO, Ms Joanne D'Arcy. The Windgap Foundation is a non for profit organisation that was started over 65 years ago to provide education to children with intellectual disabilities. They provide programs that support independence, empowerment, learning and development, and aim to raise community awareness as to the needs and aspirations of children with intellectual disabilities. This was the second time that I had visited Windgap, having visited their Head Office last year, and I each time I have been extremely impressed by the quality of their work. I would like to wish Joanne the best of luck in her new role as Acting CEO, and I would like to thank all of the staff at Windgap for their work, and their advocacy.
